You're describing two things really.

Thing #1:

Person says some shit on forum x which causes their banning from forum y. This is oftentimes an appropriate move and I am opposed to making any formal rules against that.

Thing #2:

Person gets banned from not just one forum, but all the forums some mod is a mod on... This is maybe a bit more sketchy... but again... sometimes it's appropriate. I think rather than making a formal rule against that style of modding, we should be more mindful when we are voting in mods how many large forums they are already a mod for and feel comfortable opposing a modship on those grounds. As it really can be a concentration of power situation and un-anarchistic, even if all the folks involved are totally well-meaning.

Case in point, me. I am mod of 3 pretty big subs and 5 little ones(most of which I made), it's up to the community to decide if letting me mod more would be a mistake (although I really don't want any more because I'm doing pretty much jack-shit as it is tbqh)

In ZB's case they only mod 2 subs so certainly can't have performed thing #2

I Oppose the proposal because it would disallow me from banning an obvious fascist or spammer from all the subs I mod... which is a pretty terrible unintentional consequence.

Obvious fascists and spammers should (and are) be banned site-wide, really.

Yeah, I can't think of any scenario where someone would say something on one forum that would necessitate a ban for them on another forum, but not a site-wide ban. If one actually does come up, then I suppose we could modify this rule accordingly, but as of now I agree. I'll make a separate top-level comment saying so.
